  • Water is our most basic of needs, aside from oxygen.

    Clean water should be a right for people in every nation. We should prioritize bettering humanity in this most basic of ways. Like Silly Otter said, access to clean water would allow for agricultural development, more sanitary living conditions and thus lead to growth. It is time humanity stopped ripping itself apart over trivial things and worked together to create a better world.

  • Feed the World.

    Water, the most valuable natural resource on Earth, we take it for granted.

    The privatization of water is sad, the most basic human need, bottled and sold for a profit.
    Drilling water from Africa, Middle East, South America for money, leaving behind pollution and no water.

    Supplying clean water to everyone on Earth would instantly increase living conditions, lives would be improved as they can farm, stay healthier, and can start to improve and expand.

    Water should be a human right.

  • Water is a compound.

    It is simply a chemical compound. It is not a right. Perhaps the question has to do with access to water being a right. There is much legal precedent dealing with this issue. Some deal with water flow for power, some with access to water for recreation, and some with water as a life sustaining resource. Maybe the question needs to be tweaked.

  • Rights aren't limited

    Let's say you have 1,000 gallons of water to split between 10 people. You know you'll run out eventually. So you pass a law declaring water to be a human right... And everybody is entitled to 500 gallons each. So, 500 to 10 people. How many gallons of water do you have?

    You still have 1,000 gallons. Scarcity is a real thing, and you can't command more of a scarce thing into existence. Declaring a scarce commodity a human right does absolutely nothing insofar as it changing the supply of that commodity.

    Saying that we should make serious efforts to make sure that we get water to as many people as possible (which is something we should do) is not the same as declaring that water is a human right (which is something we should not do).

  • No water is not a right

    Water is a compound. It is simply a chemical compound. It is not a right. Perhaps the question has to do with access to water being a right. There is much legal precedent dealing with this issue. Some deal with water flow for power, some with access to water for recreation, and some with water as a life sustaining resource. Maybe the question needs to be tweaked. I am not plagiarizing, I am using my resources.
